zephyr_chang Thanks for the suggestions! I really like Knight of the Holy Nimbus and I'm going to swap it for Leonin Skyhunter .

Hopefully, the price of History of Benalia drops after it rotates out of Standard - lots of value in that card. Knight of the Holy Nimbus is also pretty resilient and I would include that in some number over Leonin Skyhunter and/or Knight of the White Orchid , which I think are the more underwhelming creatures you have right now. Benalish Marshal could also be a contender over Mirran Crusader , which seems to me more of a sideboard card for G/B creature matchups.

Thanks garruk3! I was thinking about putting in a Serra Avatar as another wincon, but not sure what to cut for it. And it's cmc is so darn high! Lifelink certainly makes sense, especially since I could get it on an Ajani's Pridemate early, but again I really don't know what I'd cut for it. Perhaps I could take out a land or two since the curve is so low, but I'm already on the low side..

I hadn't seen Angel's Feather or Serra Ascendant before. Might swap out Leonin Skyhunter for the Attendant in the sideboard.

EspioNova I don't think Angelic Page is a good creature, and it doesn't really have any good synergy with angels. If it's 2 mana flyers what you want, you could use Leonin Skyhunter which is a knight, or Aven Squire which gives +1/+1 without tapping, or Angelic Wall which is on theme with angels and will block many things in early game. But really, it would be much better to use those 2 manas in more powerful cards like Wall of Omens, Knight of the White Orchid or Honor of the Pure, or at least in adding more knights like Knight of the Holy Nimbus, Knight of Meadowgrain or Accorder Paladin.

Bear in mind I really only play Casual, but Leonin Skyhunter and/or Order of the Golden Cricket have been good. I have been experimenting lately with Sigarda's Aid and Whispersilk Cloak, and two copies of Godsend I had lying around. Not enough matches yet to say if Id recommend it. Equipment or enchantments could be a way to sneak in other effects as mono-white knights dont have great options for fliers. A few angels might work too.

I have a couple suggestions:

  • Midnight Duelist is a particularly mediocre card. A 1/2 with an irrelevant ability is well behind the curve. Replace this card with Student of Warfare--one of the better one-drops in both knights and white weenies. Generally, I hate Level up cards--most of them are poorly costed, and far too susceptible to removal. Student is an exception--a 3/3 with First Strike for 3 is pretty nice. A 3/3 with First Strike that you can have on turn two is fantastic (turn one: play plains and Student, turn two, play planes, level up student twice).

  • Suntail Hawk is not a great card--you don't have enough support to justify running it.

  • Knight of the White Orchid is a strong card, particularly if you are on the draw.

  • Kinsbaile Cavalier makes for a better top-of-your-curve than Angel of Invention.

  • Radiant Destiny is quite mediocre, and you have better lords and other bonuses already. Oketra's Monument is three-mana for little real effect. Yes, it will net you tokens, but most of your creatures do not benefit from its cost reduction. Replace these cards with Path to Exile--probably the best removal spell in Modern.

  • Knight of Glory's Exalted ability is not particularly useful in a deck that seeks to go wide and swing with a bunch of lord-boosted creatures. Instead consider Leonin Skyhunter--another two drop, in your relevant tribe, with evasion.
